Challenge

Calderdale Council invited ASF to a planning meeting regarding the public area adjacent to St Michaels Church, Mytholmroyd.

An area was undergoing re-paving and renovation that would require a number of street furniture elements - the specification at this stage was pretty open with a general thought towards polished stainless steel combined with timber.

There was a need for seating, tree grilles, cycle stands, a step handrail unit and a length of quayside post and rail to core fix to a knee high retaining wall along the river bank

ASF were given a fixed fee and asked to offer some design solutions.

Solution

Firstly, ASF produced product drawings - some from standard range items and some bespoke. These were accepted in theory by the client. ASF conducted a number of site visits, some with and some without the client. Once the site was surveyed, measured and drawn a final specification was developed:

Seating

The stylish ASF 6012 seat was used, 6 in total.  Manufactured in grade 316 stainless steel from recycled sources with timbers in non tropical, non endangered hardwood.

Quayside post and rail

This was designed as a modified ¾ height version of the usual ASF 211 quayside post. Manufactured in grade 316 stainless steel from recycled sources the design core fixes into the retaining wall and has a permanent cover plate to over the fixing area.  The rail sections are a combination of stainless steel tubing and tension cables. Installation required a fair amount of onsite welding, so ASF brought in a mobile polishing company to finish the job to a high standard after installation.

Post and glass panel

Abutting to one end of the quayside post and rail is an area of cantilevered stone paving overlooking the river. ASF custom manufactured a section of stainless steel and glass feature post and panel to connect cleverly into the curved profile of the quayside post. Again, manufactured from grade 316 stainless steel from recycled sources.

Tree grilles

There was simply not enough in the budget for stainless steel tree grilles, so ASF manufactured ASF 327 cast iron tree grilles in our own on site foundry. These are manufactured in 100% recycled cast iron and to follow the polished metal theme of the other products, were finished in a slow heated clear lacquer, preserving the gun metal effect of the newly poured cast iron.

Step unit

One end of the site has a set of steps to a footpath and bridge over the river. ASF produced a bespoke stainless steel handrail for this.

Cycle parking

The ASF 8000 stainless steel cycle stand was used to provide secure cycle parking on the site.

Outcome

ASF surveyed, designed, manufactured and partially installed a full range of street furniture products on a  fixed budget and in a fixed timescale. This offered the client complete peace of mind for the project.
